BUSINESS TIP OF THE DAY: Lead From The Back And Play A Support Role


Today’s tip comes from Anne Berkowitch, co-founder and chief executive of SelectMinds, a social networking company.

If you think about how you steer a boat, it’s always from the back, and I’ve moved toward the back of the boat.
Initially, my sense of leadership was to be the military general out in front of the troops and the first one rushing into battle. You have to be a leader. You have to be visible.
People have to know that you’re in charge and that you’re leading the charge, but I think it’s got to be almost more of a support role. 
– Anne Berkowitch, co-founder and chief executive of SelectMind
